I ordered a copy of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography several months ago, but I just got it last week. The University of South Dakota Press underestimated the demand by a pretty wide margin. I did not read the any of Wilder's books until I was an adult and read them to my kids. I loved all the detail about life on the Great Plains in the nineteenth century. I remember great descriptions of things like how to build a log cabin and what the brake man did on a train.
